Pros: employer contributes % (does not match) to 401k, co-workers, personalities, locations of work, upward mobility
Cons: management communication
Diverse atmosphere; winning point of company is the personalities and culture. Many hard working and technically smart individuals supporting DARPA/DHS/NASA, etc.
Being involved in the contracting world there are highs and lows - directly impacted by awards, budget cuts, etc. Schafer has proved to be an asset to high caliber clients which retain and have expanded our services.
There have been a lot of upper management changes in recent years with poor communication but have noticed a significant effort to improve of late.
